I'm afraid I am late this week as I am not well and bedbound, serves me right, I actually dared to go out on Saturday night and enjoy myself!!! tut tut........I went to a haunted house and did a paranormal night with our friends.  Anyway, I haven't been able to move since, so luckily I had coloured in my digi stamp already from our sponsor this week Eureka Stamps with my beloved Promarkers, check out Love to Create Challenge blog HERE and join in!! The challenge is 'Wrap it Up' with twine, rope, fibres, ribbon whatever you want!
I chose to use the father & son fishing bears, I kinda think they are cute and would make a great Father's Day card/Dad's Birthday Card.........so, I spent a painful hour sat up at my desk making my coloured digi into a card and this is the upshot! Hope you like it, drop by the blog and visit my fellow clever designers to see what they have made they are a talented bunch of gals,

So, this week at Love to Create Challenge blog we got the chance to work with some fantastic digital stamps from our sponsor this week A Day for the Daisies HERE I was that taken with the stamps on offer that I didn't know what to choose and when I had I ended up making two cards, so this post is a little bit photo heavy folks, LOL !!! Our challenge this week was 'All That Glitters'

This 1st card is, as you can see in lilac and teal, (with my beloved ProMarkers) I just love this colour combo and I don't use it enough, I thought it really suited her well!!  The flowers on the right of the card are handmade by me with vintage seam binding, and a lovely bow I made from one of my favourite materials, scrunched taffeta! I completely forgot, when I had nearly finished that our challenge this week was 'all that glitters' LOL........so I hoped adding tiny diamantes to her hair and teal coloured diamantes around my flowers, could pass for glittering!!! Ha!! x
 Close up of my girl!
 I just love how she has turned out!! x

This is the 2nd card I did from the same stamp in Pink and Light Green, again with my beloved ProMarkers. I am very taken with this colour combo too, so you can tell why I had such a dilemma choosing which one to use so I thought, what the heck! I'll do two this week!!! LOL....the lace flower and stickpin are both handmade by me, I love them......and I have added crystalline glitter around the girl and through her hair......topped off with a iridescent butterfly and some Melissa Frances pearls, this card has turned out to be one of my all time favourites!! I hope you agree, I love them both

 An angled shot of my card below showing some lovely blooms including my handmade lace flower&stickpin.

Finally a close up of my handmade lace flower from genuine vintage lace, and my handmade pink crystal and pearl stickpin..........

Thankyou so much for looking and bearing with me, indulging me in this long post and I hope you will pop over to Love to Create and join in with the challenge, Happy Crafting!!!
